IACCE is pleased to partner with Teri Smiley and Starfish Partnerships for a new All Things Chamber Webinar Series. This program is an excellent staff onboarding program and can also be used as a refresher to current staff members during staff meetings or a staff retreat. The series includes an introduction video and six (6) modules in the areas that cover "All Things Chamber":

All Things Introduction – Program Overview and Welcome Message

  1. All Things Governance – Governing Documents, Board Role & Responsibilities, Committees & Task Force Groups, Board Meetings & Retreats
  2. All Things Operations – Financial Management, Staff Teams & Culture
  3. All Things Membership – Recruitment, Relationships, Retention

  6. All Things “Extra” – Foundations, Marketing & Communications, Non-Dues Revenue, Lessons Learned

The "All Things Chamber" bundle provides pre-recorded material, averaging a hour per module split into several shorter videos for ease of training, plus downloadable notes pages of the power points and additional PDF documents. Participating chambers will also be invited to a private Facebook group for Q&A and connecting with fellow chamber members across the country. This versatile digital resource allows you to utilize the content for a comprehensive staff training or retreat or for individual training at your own pace. You will have access to the recordings through December 31, 2025.

​IACCE members can purchase this incredible tool for only $195. Upon registration, IACCE will notify Teri and you will receive a unique access code from her for your chamber to use. Please remember that your unique access code may not be share with anyone outside of your chamber staff.
